Continue extracurricular activities, clinical and/or research work. Begin planning to study abroad, if interested. If you would like to attend a health profession school immediately after graduation, the best time to study abroad is the fall of your junior year. If you study abroad in the fall semester of your junior year, some programs offer physics (London and Puebla) or other upper-level science courses (Dublin and Perth). If you choose another site, you should plan carefully with your advisor and possibly take a science course in the summer.

Students officially declare majors. Sophomores will meet with an advisor from our office to make sure they are on track with grades, research, service hours, etc. Will often want to talk about summer experiences and opportunities. In addition, students accepted into various study abroad programs will make appointments to ensure that they are meeting requirements for Pre Health and their major during their semester away. 

Summer: Perform clinical, service, or research work.
